As we learn more and more about healthy eating, the negative side effects of table sugar become increasingly apparent. Coconut sugar also referred to as coconut palm sugar, offers a healthier alternative to table sugar. It’s created by heating the sap from the flower of a coconut palm until the water evaporates, leaving behind a brown granulated sugar product. This product has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar, making it a healthier option for your sweetening needs.
This sugar can be used in the same way as table sugar, whether that means sprinkling a bit on your morning oatmeal or stirring it into your coffee. Keep in mind that its taste is more akin to brown sugar, so you’ll want to use it in recipes where exchanging white sugar for brown sugar would taste okay. Use this sugar on a 1:1 basis as regular sugar in recipes.
